Photos From Israel

I promised more photos and here they are, albeit a bit disorganized. We have been so very busy trying to cram in as much as we can and it has been hard to get on-line. I'll keep at it.

A happy sight after an 11 hour plane ride - Welcome to Israel at the airport.
Apartment buildings located on the typical rocky terrain.

Camels grazing on the side of the road.
Pretty skinny!

Surprisingly, this is the desert.  It is rock, not sand.

The Dead Sea.

Safed - a very European looking town.
There are soldiers everywhere in Jerusalem, but most of he ones we have seen are in training.  Everyone has to serve in the army .  They usually do it after high school.  Girls serve 2 years and boys serve for 3 years.



  1. Thanks Cheryl for showing us your wonderful photos! What great experiences you must be having! Between the scenery, the architecture, the camels, the language, the art, WOW! Great pictures!
    Can't wait to see what you post next!
